Do y’all like plates as much as I do? I seem to have collected plates for many years now & have them in just about every room of the house. Seems I can’t get enough, as I just found these 4 on clearance at Homegoods (for $3 each) and I had to go back & get them. I did have some of my green bunny plates up here in my office nook, but this seems like a good spot for the new ones. I love the delicate damask pattern & the colors are so pretty, an almost chartreuse limey green, with an aqua band. They would look pretty on a tablescape too.
Black & white is a great combo with lime green, so these in my laundryroom are a nice mix in with all the garden things. The middle green one came from a yardsale & I think the small black/white ones came from Ross.
This is one of my yardsale finds from earlier this year. There was a set of 3 & this one happened to be a duplicate, so I kept it & added it to my somewhat tropical British Colonial guestbath, where it is right at home. This whole vignette is made up of yardsale finds over the years, including the little glass topped shelf.
Another Raymond Waites plate, this one was a gift from an online buddy several years ago & it’s also in the guestbath.
I just adore black & white & these plates called my name from TJ Maxx, I think. I could move them to several places in the house & they would look great. Another green yardsale plate in the middle.
My dear mother-in-law gifted me with this blue/white Commander’s Palace plate. I didn’t even know what it was when I got it, but found out that it is a famous restaurant in New Orleans. It adds a lot of charm to this table & since I don’t have a lot of blue/white in the livingroom, really stands out.
More black & white, this time with toile design & these came from Garden Ridge many years ago.
Raymone Waites again…these fruit plates were a favorite among some of my online friends a few years ago & I still haven’t gotten tired of them. These are in the diningroom. Since I only found 2 of them at a decent price, I added the small fruit print in the middle rack & I really like the combo, instead of the expected set of 3.
I’ve showed these before too, but I have several blue/white plates in the bedroom that I found at Homegoods. That is a great store to find plates & their clearance prices can’t be beat!
These pretty blue/green plates are a real favorite of mine too. There was a neat store in Atlanta that I used to shop at sometimes called Hill Street Warehouse. They had the neatest dishes & all sorts of imported pottery pieces. Sometimes they marked them down & you could find some decent prices. I bought these 3 and have used them several places over the years. Right now they are in the downstairs guestbath. I love the combo of the delicate colors in these particular plates. And, as you can see, this is where the yardsale wooden bird ended up. Isn’t he adorable here? Hope you enjoyed the plate tour!
Excellent plates 🙂
I love all your plates! There’s always room for one more! Right?

All of your plates are pretty, but my favourites are the red/white Spode plates against that fabulous yellow wall. A perfect combination!!
Didn’t think anyone could beat me for the number of plates on the walls, but you’re so far out of my league I can’t even SEE you! Love your plates, some of which I have the same.

I thought I knew about all your plates, but you’ve been collecting more! It has been fun seeing the things from the previous house used again here, and of course your newest goodies too. Enjoyed all the pictures!

I LOVE plates on walls and all around the house. I have so many and would not trade them for anything! I love all of yours too and how you display them. No one is more talented at display and decorating than beautiful Rhoda!!
Love those plates – every one of them! I have the black and white checked ones and I adore them.

I really enjoyed this post. I have a very large collection of plates that I decorate with but I picked up a few new ideas from you. BTW…fabulous blog!
Hi Rhoda Angela at Cottagemagpie referenced your plates so Ihad to take a look for myself. I love plates too! Most of mine have come from garage sales over the years. I first only had blue & white but now I have many different colors. You and I have very similar tastes in decorating. I think you said that once in a comment to me also!!

Wondering what the yellow paint color is called that you have your blue/white plates hanging against in your above pic?
